Tabloid queen Lindsay Lohan will be starring as Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime biopic Liz & Dick. The first official photos have been released, and Lohan sure seems to be capturing the visual essences of Taylor in the 1960s. The biopic will recount the stormy relationship between Taylor and Richard Burton, portrayed by “True Blood” actor Grant Bowler.
“I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor,” Lohan said in statement, as reported by MTV. “She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role.”
There is no release date yet set for Liz & Dick, but here’s hoping the young starlet stays “honored” and committed to this major role that can bring her back to her glory days in the early 2000s after Mean Girls.
